Police: Las Vegas music festival resumes, no shots fired

LAS VEGAS (AP) – A music festival in Las Vegas has resumed after a “security incident” temporarily halted Saturday’s performances, authorities said.

The Las Vegas Police Department said in a post on Twitter that performances at the Lovers & Friends Festival have continued after a report of gunshots was unfounded.

“At this time, there is no indication of a shooting,” the post said.

Police told KSNV-TV that one person was injured when large groups of people rushed from the Las Vegas Festival Grounds. The person’s injuries do not appear to be life-threatening.

Festival organizers showed a message on screens in the venue saying there had been a security incident, authorities were investigating and had to stay on site, officials said.

The two-day festival features various R&B and rap artists, including Usher, Ludacris and Ne-Yo. The festival started on Saturday.
